Areas of Specialization/Research
The nematology program has responsibility for evaluating the
influence of plant parasitic nematodes on agriculturally
important plant species. Ongoing projects include the
monitoring of species and races of nematodes associated
primarily with cotton, soybean, sugarcane, rice and
vegetables; evaluation of the impacts of pest complexes on
soybean and cotton; and screening of promising new methods
of nematode management.
